Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Robotic Systems at ETH Zürich

The Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering (www.mavt.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for a Tenure Track Assistant Professorship of Robotic Systems. The assistant professorship is part of the National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication on innovative building processes.

The successful candidate is expected to develop a strong and visible research program in the area of design, modeling, intelligent control and implementation of robot systems. The candidate should be able to bridge solid theoretical foundations, development of computational control methods, and systems design for applications to areas such as robot locomotion and manipulation in complex settings such as construction sites, unstructured industrial environments or disaster areas. The candidate is expected to make important research contributions to the NCCR Digital Fabrication, in particular to robot systems for the future construction of buildings. Candidates should hold a PhD degree and have an excellent record of accomplishments in engineering or related fields with a specialization in robotics systems. In addition, commitment to teaching graduate level courses (English) and the ability to establish and lead a world-class research group are expected.

This assistant professorship has been established to promote the careers of younger scientists. The initial appointment is for four years with the possibility of renewal for an additional two-year period and promotion to a permanent position.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and statements of future research and teaching activities. The letter of application should be addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Lino Guzzella.
The closing date for applications is 31 March 2015. ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and family friendly employer and is further responsive to the needs of dual career couples. We specifically encourage women to apply.
